Subject: This show CRANKS BRAH
Best part of them playing Tricycle again was that it lead to more people hearing this first set It's a relative term, but a few dozen more people getting this in their brains is a beautiful thing.

Set 1 is an all inclusive facebuster. They touch on a lot of different styles and fit them together so well. When they finally Untz out in Confrontation, it takes about 3 beats before the entire crowd seems to start clapping. Very psychedelic yet upbeat HAB jam that seems to deconstruct pieces of the "Flight" segment starts things off. Goes into a nasty Plan B, so obviously it doesn't stay so perky and upbeat the entire time!
The Floes is everything Floes should be, one of my favorite versions of the ending segment- God this song was sweet when Magner took the lead for the entire runup to the peak.
Barber's solo going into the end of Plan B isn't shreddy, it's just perfection. Very patient and melodic take on it. The Crickets is fairly average, some nice Gates Of Hell, especially once they make the turn into Confrontation.
Unspoken Rhyme, like the Shelby earlier is a prime example of Fall 2000 jungle, and like Floes, this has always been one of the definitive versions of the song's crescendo to me.
The second set is solid but Unspoken Rhyme is the clear champion. The actual segues in the RLH-> Crickets and Dribble->Floodlights->Dribble are all well done, but overall it doesn't live up to the Fall 2k dream sequence that it is on paper.

So yeah, shockingly.. Biscuits play one set that looks kind of disjointed and one set that looks perfectly primed to destroy the world, and it's the awkward quiet set with the back brace and the third nipple that wins.

Four stars..Set 1 is IMO a legit 4.5 top 75-100 set ever, Set 2 is maybe a 2? One great set is worth a 4 overall any day though.
